Feedback Linearization of Hysteretic Thermoelastic Dynamics of Shape Memory Alloy Actuators with Phase Transformations
In the current paper, a macroscopic differential model for the hysteretic dynamics in shape memory alloy actuators is constructed by using the modified Landau theory of the first order phase transformation. An intrinsic thermo-mechanical coupling is achieved by constructing the free energy as a function depends on both mechanical deformation and the material temperature. Both shape memory and pseudoelastic effects are modeled. The hysteretic dynamics is linearized by introducing another hysteresis loop via nonlinear feedback strategy, which cancels the original one.
